Here's to Pat and Carolyn - they truly "get" the overall objective of school and try to help students with learning challenges achieve academic goals.

And a big shout-out to John Brentar, the Executive Director of Morrissey-Compton. What a great combination of professional insight and human compassion.

Love it ... although I don't know how many people can afford $2250 for the program.

My husband was a student of Pat Morrissey and her guidance, support and strength not only made him a successful student, but also a confident, successful, and amazing Dad/husband! I am grateful for the love and support of his parents by introducing him to such an amazing resource in his life! All of us parents should live more for what our children need then for what our minds "want" our children to be... We will find that like a garden, each flower brings it's own individual beauty if we feed it's individual needs :) xo. Thank you Pat Morrissey!
